Awkward but Functional

My funky little blanket project is coming along and making its mark on the world in its own unique way! Also known as--its awkward, but its warm and colorful so I still like it. It's been a nice little busy bee project to ease my periodic panics over house hunting. And keeps me off my laptop all evening searching for that diamond in rough, clicking refresh every five mintes is just plain un-healthy. So I will repeatedly say--crochet away! :)

Still bunchy in the middle, but its not noticable when its on my lap. Thankfully. I'm just baaaarely able to push my OCD aside and not unravel the whole thing. But like I said, its good for me to have busy-bee project right now! (More on this blanket saga here & here)

So tell me, what projects have you worked on when you're stressed? Do you crochet/knit/sew/fillintheblank to pass the time in stressful situations?


  1. I really like it! I think you're doing a great job. And also nice to have that distraction hobby for sure. I tend to reorganize things... so as you can imagine, my house has been seeing a lot of that recently in the nesting craze. The only problem with it is I have a lot of regular housework to keep up with, so there has to be a balance, and that doesn't always happen. But it makes me happy to have a nicely new organized closet! LOL. And then I'm bummed 'cause the rest of my house is a mess. Oh well, it's all good. :) It's all about being productive I believe. As long as things are getting accomplished, forward progress is being made.

  2. Oohh organizing, that would be a good one for me too!
